The second you read this you should order the movie sountrack and spring for the express shipping so you wont have to wait one second longer than you have to!

You can thank Cliff later...

Yeah, you HAVE to see it. Here's another one that I consider a must see - Festival Express. I'm still all goosebumpy getting to see vintage stuff I never thought I would.

When that movie was released, critic Judith Crist said, "50 years from now when people want to know what a rock concert was like, they can see this film."

Or something to that effect.

I'm not really familiar with the soundtrack, but much of the movie is sensational. The opening animation is a hoot and it melds nicely into U.S. Blues. One More Saturday Night, Playin' In The Band, Stella Blue, Goin Down The Road Feelin' Bad, Johnny B. Goode---lots of great music. It is not the same thing as the vault videos, which are simply concert footage. It was produced more as a documentary, so there are brief interview clips, a very entertaining sequence featuring the quippies and Bill Graham, and a fair amount of onscreen time given to various and sundry Dead Heads in and around Winterland. The camera work is not consistently good, though; many of the songs themselves are clipped for the sake of dramatic license in the interest of telling the story; and some of the non-musical sequences could have been left on the editing room floor. And it's way too bad that the nature of high quality footage that is found in the movie exists in such rare quantity with regard to Pigpen (he appears in the movie only in a few well-known photos). But it was shot at a time when the band was still healthy, energetic, and relatively young, and that youthful vitality is a kick in the ass to watch. Case in point would be the fermata before Sunshine Daydream-watch Jerry having a ball, milking it for all it's worth, Morning Dew is one for the ages.

If you watch the DVD with bonus features, the Mars Hotel commercial was included as the result of a conversation I had with Dennis McNally, and I'm quite proud of that.

Infrared roses is what it is - a collection of Drums or Space recordings from live shows. If you dig that kind of stuff, you'll like the album. I got it off of ebay with a bunch of other albums, but I've only listened to it once or twice. I personally think it sucks. There are some drums>space segments that I like, but a whole album of it gets old real fast.

Jammin Jerome is right: Infrared Roses is barely listenable, unless you really get off on Grateful Dead Space music, and is only something to have in order to complete one's collection.

The soundtrack is sweet. This is one of my favorite runs of shows. In my opinion GDP usually released good quality stuff and there is a reason they have released it. The reason for this one is that it kicks ass.

One vote for soundtrack sucks. First, the recording is poor. Remember "Steal Your Face"? Phil writes that he and Owsley had to assemble that l.p. from horribly done recordings. The quality of the music suffers, especially when compared to other shows from that era.

The movie, though, is fuhn.

really everyone says the soundtrack is great quality. Also id rather have the soundtrack because the movie has cuts in a lot of the songs. Like the 30 minute PITB on disc 1. The movie and the soundtrack come from the same reels, how can quality differ?

Personal taste, I guess. Remember--the soundtrack and the film have different mixes. I also think that the performances are not as good as other shows from that year. Just my opinion.


I had it out just last week and played it in my car--it just didn't do it for me. BUT seeing them play seems to add a different dimension.

TheGreat_And_Knowledgable: ..unique spelling on the name

You gotta get the GD Movie (I have no idea about the soundtrack cd, but the movie is a prime cut of GD). buy.com (http://www.buy.com) offers free shipping for orders over $25 and they have a deal with Google regarding using "Google Checkout" -- first-time buyers get $10 off -- I would say it's worth the hassle to get the movie for a net total of approx. $16.

I would also recommend, however, as a sweet counterpoint to that DVD, "Grateful Dawg," with Jerry and David Grisman from 1990/1991 (primarily folk music) -- documentary style film, however it captures Jerry as real person without all the messianic crap dumped on his head with the GD. The interview with Vassar Clemens is worth the price of the DVD alone, however, naturally the music is priceless.

I can hardly burn cd's otherwise I'd send copies of the DVD's to TheGreat-One --- AshesRising

I have acquired it, 1!!!. The China Rider on the first disc is amazing, one of the best examples of the segue theme jam.
